amendment make this a safer country? fox news poll ask if they believe that gun laws help stop acts like the newtown shooting? 22 percent said yes. tougher laws can help. 71 percent said no people will still find ways to get and use firearms. does the president's action hit the mark? emily miller joining us from washington. good morning, emily. >> good morning, tucker. >> tucker: is there any evidence that gun control in the united states, a country with a second amendment. you can't ban this tfps not helping. it doesn't change anything. that was banning certain cosmetic features which is what the president wants to do again. there is absolutely no evidence at all that gun laws decrease crime and the reason is simple. the bad guys are already disregarding the laws. they know there are laws against robbery and know there is laws against murder. ownership of a gun is not going to stop them from doing anything. >> tucker: to keep this in perspective from so-called assault rifles, there are about 310 million people in this country. 2011 there were 330 deaths from rifles, and that includes su
? you think that's good? >> that's the law in florida. we have 1020 life. if a crime is committed in possession of a life it's a mandatory 10 years, if you pull out the gun a mandatory 20 years. these criminals are in jail. >>steve: senator rubio will be kwroeupbg -- joining us. >>brian: a terror group is holding at least a dozen people hostage including seven americans. >> here's what the latest is. the algerian army is surrounding a gas facility where hostages are being held. the terrorists say that the attack and the kidnapping is in revenge for french intervention in the country of mali. overnight the algerian government has been in talks with both united states and france, and we understand that the algerian government is now talking to tribal leaders that apparently do have ties to the terrorists. here's how the thing went down. there was a bus carrying american, british, norwegian french and japanese workers. that bus was ambushed by two armed men and two people were killed. they took off to the gas field and the total number of hostages remains unclear but reports say it r
law went into effect, when they were supposed to cover all of these things they hadn't had to cover before, and their premium increases, which few democrats saw coming,-under now etch -- are now etched in stone. >> that's because states like mine and california don't have any authority to actually do anything but review these rate increases. states that have reviewed those rate increases have actually forced those rates down, and because -- >> they don't. they don't. you might be right, might have the power and authority in private but let's say something like unite health care tries to push in a 20% increase and they get an 18% increase. still a big increase. i guess what i'm getting at, with the best of your intentions here, seems we're doing everything but addressing underlying spending when we say things like, spending isn't the problem. healthcare penning is. maybe that would do the trick. when we come up with the idea -- not you -- but the trillion dollar coin or 14th amendment to give the president the power to avoid that mess and just hike the ceiling himself. we go through
to the crisis we face as a nation, only honest law-abiding gun owners will be affected, and our children will remain vulnerable to the inevitability of more tragedy. despite the president's statement that today's event was all about protecting america's youth, there is little question that no one or any combination of his executive orders would do as much to protect schoolchildren as the nra proposal to place armed guards and all of our schools, a recommendation that most on the left and in the national media initially tried to who down. a proposal that elicited a skeptical response from the president himself, but which is now beginning brought up momentum. a new ad accuses the president of elite is hypocrisy on the issue. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? why is he skeptical about putting our security in our schools? his kids are protected by armed guards at their schools. mr. obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he's just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. lou: the white house responded by calling the nra co
the country to oppose the white house effort to reform the nation's gun laws. at demonstrations in pennsylvania and ohio, gun owners pilloried calls for stricter gun control. >> no law put on law abiding citizens has ever deterred crime. they're going to take my gun so i can get shot. >> my thoughts is, tell the leftwing liberal idiots in washington to leave our guns alone. we're not hurting anything. it is the criminals. deal with the criminals, not the law abiding citizens. >> the pro-gun rallies also coincided with a series of nationwide gun shows where at least five people were wounded when their firearms accidentally went off. in north carolina, three people were injured when a shotgun accidentally fired as its owner removed it from its case. another gun owner accidentally shot himself in indianapolis, while an ohio a gun show attendee was injured by stray bullet. president obama is set to publicly take the oath of office today at his second term inauguration in washington. obama gathered with his family sunday in the blue room of the white house to privately recite the 35-
now for a grassroot changes to gun laws. >> heather: doug mckelway, thank you. we'll have much more on the gun debate and whether the president's governing style is too combative to get anything done coming up later. >> gregg: for a mere $300,000 you could probably get some nice wheels, a ferrari, even a rolls royce or just buy a used pickup truck. that is how much somebody paid at auction for 2009 ford f-150 king ranch super crew. it was once owned by president george w. bush. he donated the car to benefit the fisher house foundation a charity that drives and serves u.s. military families. identity of the buyer is anonymous. it was at the car show. >> heather: maybe he was anonymous bidder. >> gregg: i don't think dominic. >> fischer foundation is great. they provide housing for veterans and families undergoing medical treatment. the pride of boeing's fleet grounded. new update on the serious safety problems plaguing the dream liner. >> gregg: and looking back at moments in presidential history. >> heather: plus why the french are in tempest over american bubbly. ♪ tiny bubbles
to be a piece of cake and they should be. >> eric: group of law-abiding citizens comparing it to bin laden and hitler. >> bob: not the nra membe membership. there are fine good people out there. the nra itself. the big nra building and inside that building are real thugs. >> eric: we dug up state bill 759. 5 # state senators voted yea to clamp down on the school shooters. one voted nee and one was present. barack obama in the present vote. >> andrea: voting present is the least courageous thing you can do. i want to respond to what rush said. is bob schieffer a journalist? i don't consider him a journalist. i haven't considered him a journalist in a long time. it's the opinion that comes out of his mouth. if asked why isn't he being held accountable? he is the media. the friends won't hold him accountable for this. south carolina party tick harputleo, in pat lehman in kansas in the presidential election compared paul ripe or mitt romney or nikki haley to nazis. all of them. it's commonplace. >> eric: schieffer, should he use the comparison? >> dana: it doesn't make sense anyway. people in
prominently, a bushmaster, like the one used in the newtown massacre. there was also a circle of uniformed law enforcement officers and gun violence victims. there was rolled out with pomp and circumstance, but did she get the message right? she, herself, admits that getting this passed will not be easy. >> if anyone asks today, can you win this? the answer is, we don't know. it's so uphill. >> uphill is right. the fact of the matter is that gun violence from assault weapons is estimated the to be between 2% and 8% of the gun crime in this country. so, is this how democrats should be spending their time? or are they overreaching and risking chances for success? roland martin joins me along with with raham slon. can this bill pass? >> look, you don't know until you actually take the effort. i think it's crazy when we say things such as, well, it's a small piece. it sort of reminds me of the federal budget, erin, when we say, well, it's only a drop in the bucket. well, every little bit helps. i don't have a problem if we have an impact on guns that could affect 2 to 8%. well, then we can deal wi
newtown. >> on the letter that julie wrote me, she said i know that laws have to be passed by congress. but i beg you to try very hard. julie, i will try very hard. >> also greeting the president, 10-year-old teja goode. >> you don't want to lose your life over one little thing, luke a bullet. >> reporter: before signing nearly two dozen executive actions, the president called on americans to ask representatives what's more important? >> doing whatever it takes to get an "a" grade from the gun lobby that funds their campaigns? or giving parents some piece of mind when they drop their child off for first grade? >> reporter: even before the president's remarks, the nra unleashed this attack. this invokes mr. obama's daughters. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools, when his kids are protected by armed guards at their schools? >> reporter: the white house quickly blasted the video as repugnant and cowardly. and house speaker -- if congress acts on this, house speak her john boehner will have to play a si
is ethical. this is fraught with all kinds of ethical perils. laws say the white house can not spend resources to lobby the congress. and that may mean, you can't take white house personnel and send them to go do fund-raising events for this obama for america. there are strictures what guidance the white house can give. you can't direct a group. the white house can't pull the people in, here are the five things we want you to do, go do them. bill: but the intent here, and familiar players, jim messina, david axelrod, stephanie cutter. robert gibbs, those are all people that have been with him for the past five plus years. but the idea is to push what the president believes are the right ideas and policies for the country regardless as to whether or not the democratic party is pushing for the same thing. >> there will be a tension. look, increasingly democrats my name is on the ballot in 14 or 16. u.s. is not, mr. president. what the heck are you doing putting me in a difficult place? let's not pass over the ethics issue. on the inaugural committee, we know the inaugural committee is
of the people believe that banning crimes would reduce croim. 58 percent said less violent crime if more law-abiding citizens had guns . all of this when the president laid out the most aggressive gun control in decadesment katherine has more in virginia. >> thank you, harris and here in clarks brother. this is one of the first momes of relative silence. we saw throughout the day, parking lot packed and lines in the gun range. many came here to clark brothers because they wanted to show solidarity for the gun ownership . believe in the sanctity of the second amendment. others had an open mind and would support new rules to raise the age . others say the obama administration is targeting the wrong people. >> we have so much decisiveness from the administration is a whole group of people to sit down and try to figure out how can we reverse and turn it around and this is actually a fabulous thing. we are supporting the second amendment. >> it would have to be tougher enforcement in order to get a weapon . maybe if the shot gun age is pushed up and pistols and handguns are pushed up farther that
laws in this country. how much a part of the president's resolve will that be in the months coming? >> well, the thing -- the president always said that, you know, you have to do many things at once when you're president, and that's a very important thing. we can't keep replicating these tragedies and it's not just the big tragedies, but the small, smaller strategy dtragedies than the streets every day. so he's determined to move forward on this package of laws. they're not the only things we need to do. some of the things have less to do with government and more to do with what we -- what we do in our home. what our children play and in terms of video games and what they watch. but certainly we need to do something about guns. we are hopeful that we're at a moment when we can pass the impasse that we have seen in the past and really move forward on it. >> hey, david, bob schieffer here. >> hey, bob. >> in normal times, probably we wouldn't report this, but in these fractured times this just in as they say. i'm told that speaker boehner, eric cantor, the number two republican in th
. >> and similarly, you've got this very tough new new york state anti-gun or gun control law that andrew cuomo pushed through and signed. is that going to be more of a solution to your problems in new york city and in urban areas, or does that still not go far enough because of the secondary markets and the fact that the guns are coming right across the border from neighboring states? >> i think it's going to be a help, but, again, as i say, 90% of our guns come from out of state. that's why we need a national approach. we need a federal plan. otherwise, we're still going to be playing with guns coming from all over. they come over the iron pipeline. 95, highway 95, coming up from southern states. these are guns that are landing on our doorstep, and they're killing new yorkers. now, last year as you showed me your graphic, we had the lowest mof mrdz we had in new york in at least 50 years, and we're proud of that, but there's still far too many of them. >> and, of course, your fellow cities, i mean, chicago has been plagued with homicides. homicides involving children, young people. this is an

as the national hall here and there are some 40 law enforcement agencies that work in the district of columbia when you consider the federal, the local, various different agencies, fbi, justice department, et cetera, et cetera, it goes on and on and on and they're out in full force and last night several thousand national guardsmen were deployed and they'll have to filter through that. it's smaller than in years past and four years ago 1.82 million people here and this time around they've lowered the crowd estimates from originally expected from 6 to 800 down to 5 to 700,000, it's chilly, but folks are already in the lines and quite a stampede in the next three hours as we get ready for the president getting ready to take his inaugural, having been officially sworn in yesterday. >> brian: carl, how many red bulls so far. >> gretchen: oh, my gosh. >> reporter: haven't cracked them yet. a few days, but we'll have our share. >> brian:'s got six with him, who is he kidding? thanks so much. we had a problem, none of our guests could get through the security. and jim brown had a knee operation and
